The Image of the Public Library in the Local Press and in the Eyes of the Public (English)
Abstract [en]

In this Masters thesis the image of the public library in the local press and in the eyes of the public is examined. The questions posed to examine this are: - What activities of the public library are described in the local press? - What activities does the public associate with the public library? - What functions and roles of the public library can be found in the articles and interviews and how are they expressed? - What opinions of the public library and hereto related activities can be found in the articles and interviews? This study is based on an analysis of 127 articles, published in Borås Tidning during a period of six months, and of interviews with 35 people from Sjuhäradsbygden. To analyse the articles and the interviews Marianne Andersson and Dorte Skot-Hansen´s model of roles for the library has been used. The model includes four roles for the library: the library as a cultural centre, a knowledge centre, an information centre and a social centre. The library also has a democratic role. These five roles all emerge both in the articles and in the interviews through the activities being described. Not many of the interviewees explicitly express the ideological value of the library, nonetheless they are convinced that the library fill an important function in society. To develop this view of the library we find it important that the libraries to a greater extent than at present inform people about their activities and relevance.
